We had a fantastic dinner at this restaurant! We had lobster and steak and every bite was delicious. Our server was professional and friendly. She made great wine suggestions and helped us pair it with our entrees. The atmosphere was romantic and cozy.

Right on main Street. One of the best restaurants in Bar Harbor. We enjoyed our meal. We had lamb and duck that were both excellent. You can make reservations. Mindy was our server and she was quite good.
